With its trendy and welcoming exterior you can’t help but wander in for a look at what it has inside.

As well as traditional tees and hoodies, they also offer hard goods such as belly boards and surf boards too.
If you haven’t tried surfing and fancy giving it a go, Newquay: Introduction to Surfing Lesson is a great place to start.
Watershed Brand launched off the back of the successful Watershed Surf Shop concept store, which opened in 2012 in Newquay.
After stocking well known brands such as Levis, Converse and Dickies for a few years, they decided to design, manufacture and test their own products.
And, in early 2015, decided it was time to launch Watershed as a stand-alone brand.
Now pumping it full time, Watershed is one of the best known Newquay shops for boards, clothing and grooming products.
